The current active learning project involves students visits to area companies to collect information regarding the companies’ use or nonuse of Responsibility Reports (RRs). The students involved were attending a managerial accounting principles class at southeastern, regional university, and were given oral instructions by their teacher to complete the project. Sixty-two students participated, along with sixty-one companies. The average grade earned by the students was 15.58 of 20 points, and nine students earned a perfect score. The student findings were that 45 of the 61 companies, or 73.8%, use RRs. Based on the student performance, reports and feedback, the project was determined to be a valuable Active Learning experience.
